When I met Jason Calacanis 22 years ago, he was a scrappy 20-something with big ideas, but not a lot of capital. He didn’t have money to invest, but he had the entrepreneur’s mindset, and also happened to be a poker player who learned a mantra in the game: “No gamble, no future.” This idea led him to become one of the most successful angel investors in the tech sector.
Curtis Armstrong made an unfortunate name for himself as the grumpy and misogynistic campus misfit Booger in the classic ’80s comedy “Revenge of the Nerds.” Before that, he played a foil for Tom Cruise’s sexy adventures in “Risky Business.” Later, he went on to play the oddball sidekick in the cult classic teen comedy “Better Off Dead,” the popular 80’s TV series “Moonlighting” and more recently, a serious turn as Ahmet Ertegun in the Ray Charles biopic “Ray.” But it was his appearance as...
Many people feel that climate change is the greatest challenge and threat ever faced by human civilization, but even before Donald Trump — who once claimed climate change was a Chinese hoax — became president, the segment of the population that does not “believe” in climate change has been vocal and growing.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
